    Just curious to see what programs people are using to create wallpapers for the Hero. I'm using a program called Android Converter. It's a music, video, and wallpaper converter in one. I guess it gets the job done as far as making wallpapers go, but you lose a lot of image quality in the process. So what's the Android forums advice on a program to use?

    I just download all my wallpapers straight from www.interfacelift.com Choose the 1024x768 resolution and it will fit perfectly on your phone and look great.

    I use the free app Paint.NET it's like Gimp and PhotoShop, but easier to use.

    An really old, but surprisingly useful program called PStudio. Quick and easy transform. 640x480 for wallpaper 320x480 for lockscreen.
